The Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) are expanding and modernizing their training and preparation on mental health and resilience (National Defence and Canadian Armed Forces, 2016). The Road to Mental Readiness (R2MR) program is part of this effort, and Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) has played a key role in developing and evaluating a series of mobile phone modules designed to make this training available to CAF members as self-learning tools. DRDC is currently conducting investigations into whether the R2MR mobile application can be gamified to take the form of a serious game integrating wearables to provide learners with biofeedback (Granek, Jarmasz, Boland, Guest, & Bailey, 2016).
